Toronto Veggie Food Fair

*This is a 2-part post because Blogger won't let me put all that I want in one post.

On Sunday, we headed into Toronto for the Vegetarian Food Fair. We weren't even out of Burlington and we hit a traffic jam. We got off the highway and went for a while & things were OK, but once we got down on Lakeshore Blvd. things slowed down again.

Traffic moved along pretty good though and in no time we arrived at Harbourfront Centre, site of the fair.

We lucked out and had a wonderful day. The sun was out and the temperatures were nice and cool. Down by the lake it was gorgeous.

There were quite a few vendors there and I came home with a lot of goodies. I got some foodstuffs from smaller, independent sellers because I can get Tofutti, So Soya and the like at the supermarket. I did browse over some books and cookbooks, but like Megan I restrained myself. I had my eyes peeled in case I saw her because we were both going the same day, but sadly, no Megan-sightings to report.

There was a really good turnout of people. It was great to go to an event like this and know that I could buy ANYTHING.

Even the ducks were enjoying themselves!


This last shot is for Megan. What did I tell you??

Sounds like a fabulous day. I hope someday soon this backwards town I live in will have a vegetarian festival. Although that seems really radical considering they have an RC Cola and Moon Pie fest not too far from here.

Food festival, I went to something like this for my buying club a couple of years ago... loved trying all the foods. We could place our buying club order there but not get the goods until our orders came in.

Oh wow, how fun! Love love love the pix, esp. the duckies and the photo of the lake. I'm a sucker for animals and water...

I can't even believe there is such a thing as a Vegetarian Food Fair. That is just SO cool.

It was our first time there, and we had a really good time. Now half the people I know want to go next year... vegetarian or not! :D We were there Saturday from about 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.
